Happy memories!
Wow, you have certainly captured the delights of our stay in Sofia in this write-up! Thank you for the name-check, although on this occasion I did no organising beyond suggesting how we might split into those two groups for the tour, as it didn't need to be pre-booked :)

Cabin Fever
The folks who schedule these shows are very clever. If you live in a part of the country that is cold and gray, just when you think cabin ever might be terminal, here comes he travel expo. It in January in NYC, in February in Chicago, in early January it's in Boston - are you seeing a pattern here? Glad you had a great time, and may your bucket list get ever longer.

'Cabin Fever"
You're probably correct from a marketing standpoint, and I guess the people who put on the boat show that same day at the Javits Center also take the same approach. But no matter to me as it certainly brightened up an otherwise cold and boring winter weekend!! I'm now thinking that a bucket couldn't hold all the places I'd love to travel to, LOL!! Thanks for your comment!

'Interesting to compare experiences!'
Sarah, thanks for your visit! Even with the crowds, I think you'd enjoy the NYT Travel Show, as I'm sure I would enjoy the London Destinations Show too. It would have been nice to have complimentary show tickets for sure, but the cost for our tickets was negligible in the scheme of things especially for NYC!

Interesting to compare experiences!
As you know I attended the London Destinations show around the same time, so found it interesting to compare experiences. This one seems even bigger, and with more swag! But on the plus side (for me) I can get into Destinations for free as tour companies offer tickets to anyone who has previously booked with them. Love the sound of your hotel too - if we plan a return trip to NYC I will check it out for sure.

A wonderful day out!
Great photos and memories of our lovely day out, although I didn't realise at the time that you had such a problem with the minibus, although I admit it was a little cramped. I hope it didn't spoil the day for you? And that we can find a bigger one in Bulgaria!

A wonderful day out!
Thanks for your visit, Sarah. Although I thought the Snaefellsness Peninsula tour was the best in terms of sights, I thought the transportation was the absolute worst. We were relegated to sitting in the back the entire day; I am short and yet the seating was extremely cramped for me; the shock absorbers seemed to be non-existent and every time the minivan hit bad road conditions we were jostled to the point it was almost intolerable. I actually said something to the driver/guide about how bad it was and could he please take it easy in such cases, but he was curt and moreorless gave a "get over it" reply. By the end of the day we had really had enough! So hoping for better in Bulgaria.

Bjarnarfoss Waterfall

Just stunning!
So glad the weather changed so you could capture these stunning photos. And I really liked the photo from the carbonated spring water stop too... so arty I wasn't sure what I was looking at, but such rich colours :)

Bjarnarfoss Waterfall

Just stunning...
Thanks so much for the nice comments -- I really appreciate the feedback. I'm so glad you liked the Okelda carbonated spring photo!! I'd love to visit northern Iceland now as the scenery there is just incredible.

Snaefellsnes
Having done a similar trip several years ago (but slightly different as well). you've brought back a lot of memories, and I'm pleased to see that your memories of Iceland aren't tarnished by the poor weather you had at the beginning of he trip

Snaefellsness.....
I admit the weather on the day of our Golden Circle Tour was frustrating because it was difficult to enjoy anything for long or get good photos. But Iceland is incredible and there is still so much more to see, especially in the northern portion of the country. Glad we had a reason to revisit Iceland thanks to the Euromeet and Regina & John were superb hosts.

Montenegro - Perast - Our Lady of the Rocks

By chance...
What a treat to have this included by chance. And I would have preferred this to a museum too :)

Montenegro - Perast - Our Lady of the Rocks

Can't tell you how thrilled I was to see this special little island versus a museum!

Capilla Central - Colon Cemetery

Colon Cemetery
I've read quite a few Cuban blogs but have never come across Colon Cemetery as a place to visit - I'll definitely have to add this to our wish list! It sounded hot on that visit, but I love your photos with those stark shadow lines :)

Capilla Central - Colon Cemetery

Thank you!
RENandDREW, thanks for your visit! Prior to our 1st visit to Havana, I had never heard of this cemetery either and I found it fascinating -- especially the beautiful memorials and the stories we were told. I was hoping to revisit it for more photos on our 2nd trip to Havana, but never made it there.

Havana
It feels as though I've been to Havana now after reading your blog. Good stuff Sylvia
19th August 2018

Thanks!
Thanks for your visit Malcolm! Glad we had the chance to visit Havana twice as they were both good visits. Now anxious to move on to new places.
